The purchaser further agrees to report such shipments containing items that are identified as classified/sensitive materiel, and/or arms, arms parts, or explosives, within 24 hours of discovery, regardless of dollar value, for disposition instructions from the U.S. Government. The purchaser agrees to ship such classified/sensitive materiel, and/or arms, arms parts, or explosives within 30 days of U.S. Government direction for such return. For all other items, the purchaser agrees to ship discrepant articles within 180 days of receiving U.S. Government direction for such return.
